Four women (Carlotta, Elena, Agatha and Raffaella) have given themselves to Satan and become part of a witches' coven. But even though they have acquired some witchcraft powers, Satan has complete control of their lives and relationships. Trouble starts when Carlotta's 13-year old daughter, Daria, starts behaving strangely. Daria has been fathered by Satan and is starting to discover that she has inherited very powerful satanic powers. Carlotta is frightened when she realizes how great her daughter's powers are and that she intends to use them for evil. Together with her three friends, Carlotta defies Satan to save Daria from evil - with dramatic results...

This flawed but enjoyable supernatural horror film was written and directed by occult-fiction author Pier Carpi; based on his own 1975 novel. The film was made in 1977 but not released until 1979.

The complete running time of the film is reported as being 106 minutes but the Italian, Greek and Scandinavian video releases all run 84 minutes. Only a Belgian video release is longer; at 87 minutes it includes an additional three-minute sequence where Carmen Russo's character is to be initiated into the witches' coven. Apparently, no video releases running longer than 87 minutes are known to exist.

The music by Stelvio Cipriani was later re-used in the Spanish slasher film Mil gritos tiene la noche a.k.a. Pieces (1981).

The names of many of the characters are completely different in the Italian and English language versions.
